Jerry Remy, the beloved longtime Boston Red Sox broadcaster and former Major League Baseball infielder, died Saturday night after a lengthy battle with lung cancer, the team announced. He was 68.

“We are saddened by the loss of a beloved player, broadcaster, and 13-year cancer warrior,” said Red Sox Principal Owner John Henry in a statement on Sunday.

“Jerry’s love and connection to baseball didn’t allow anything to stand between the game and him, including for many years cancer,” Henry said.

“He devoted his entire career to baseball and whether from his seat in the clubhouse or his perch above the field in the broadcast booth, he took generations of rising Red Sox stars and a multitude of fans along for the ride with him.”
